Toby King commits long-term future to Warrington

Drew Darbyshire

Toby King signed a new deal with Warrington that will see him stay at the club until at least the end of 2025.

The 24-year-old has scored 41 tries in 111 appearances for the Wolves since making his first team debut back in 2014.

King, who was named in the Super League Dream Team last season, is part of Shaun Wane’s latest England squad and has also represented Ireland on the international stage.

King said: “I’m delighted to be part of the club for the next four years.

“Hopefully I can continue to improve in the years ahead at Warrington and focus on achieving silverware this season and then building on the back of it. I still feel like I’ve got a lot more to give, I’m still young and have got time on my side.

“The fans at Warrington were a massive part of the decision to stay. Having them back in the stadiums now has made me realise even more so how special they are and I’m excited to get even more back in going forward.

“To quote one of my favourite quotes: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift – that’s why they call it the present!”

Warrington coach Steve Price said: “It’s fantastic news for our club to re-sign a player that’s come through our academy system for another four years.

“The interest from other Super League and NRL clubs speaks volumes of the special player Toby has developed into and the performances he’s been delivering.

“He’s a terrific guy to coach, in red-hot form and there’s still plenty more to come from Toby in the years ahead.”
